Welcome aboard the Jolly Roger, Cap'n Blackbeard here. You've stepped onto a ship of off-color metal/industrial waiting to make you think and then kick you in the teeth with a peg-leg. Prepare yourself for a full-on assault of your aural being; not only will Jolly Roger roll over you like a steamroller, but we'll come back and plant rose buds on your freshly smashed corpse so that someday, someone will enjoy the beautiful flowers that sprout from your chest cavity. so get ready to be used as the mop that swabs the poop deck and..other..stuff..because Jolly Roger wants to hit you at ramming speed.
Seriously, Jolly Roger is as progressive as they get. We've fused several styles into one thoughtful and pensive mixture we call melody metal. The stylings in this music are heavily influenced by the European metal scene, everyone from God Dethroned to Arkangel to American greats Cannibal Corpse can be wrung from this band's aquatically derived music.
I say we; Jolly Roger is but one person, Kyle Curtis, fed up with the fickle nature of band members. In January, 2001, I bought a BR-8 digital recorder, a Zip Drive, and Fruityloops 3.4 full version with a hope of a studio-only band worthy of international renown. Now, just a year later, with 6 complete songs and more in the works, my dream appears to have become a reality. Hopefully, with the help of the free webhosting here at IUMA.com, I'll be able to project my instrument-central vision of clarity upon the world.
So God willing and the people helping out, Jolly Roger looks to set sail during the summer of 2002. If you'd like any information on purchasing a Jolly Roger CD, email Kyle at email@example.com.
